Cause I Was

left out several times growing up.   Last kid picked for the team cause I wasn't the captains "friend", first kid dropped off after the activity so everyone else could go enjoy ice cream or doing something that was extra...

Since I had to endure it when I was growing up I don't like to put that on others, to have someone sitting apart from the crowd at a party and not feeling included in a conversation in the group setting, been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. 

I didn't like it done to me and I don't like doing it to others...

Whether it is on purpose or accident if you are part of the group then you should be included.....

The ones that delight in that Bluebie will always be that way and more than likely will never change, they stay as the kids that they were earlier cause it worked for them then but never grew up. <br />

Yes growing up has its benefits...

Especially those that seem to delight in excluding others, like they are some kind of social judge or something. The kind of people that make fun of others to somehow feel better about themselves. As an adult I can avoid them much easier. Growing up has it's benefits. :)

Too bad that some people didn't learn some lessons as kids, and may never learn them now as adults....

I couldn't agree more. And it is still happening to us as adults too.

I agree Pix... Golden Rule always applies...

I feel the same way...people who make others feel left out are cruel and insensitive...<br />

I do believe in what comes around goes around....I always try to treat people as I would like to be treated :-)

That sounds like a great way to do it FG.... Know I wouldn't be last with you....

XOXOXOXOXO you would never be last if it was me. When I have a bunch of kids at church or the teen center I make them draw numbers because I don't want them to feel left out.

Some times it is the small gestures of things to make a person feel wanted, not outcast and alone...
